Posted By: wookey One thing I have never really understood: if brick is porous then shouldn't water leave through outside face the same way it got in? Especially here in dry east anglia.

Posted By: wookeySo first real question is: What do people use for lintels with wide cavities? There will be a lot of glass in one wall. Something will be needed to hold up the bricks above here. If it's tricky then maybe just use timber rather than blocks on the inside above the glass?
Posted By: tonyWhy ever do we use single steel lintels
Posted By: wookeyThere will need to be a chunky post at the corner in the mostly-windows wall to hold up a beam which will take all the pitch roof weight and might have to take all the flat roof weight too, depending which way the fall (and thus joists) run(s) (still under debate due to grumpy neighbours). Again sugestions for details of how to integrate that post between timber windows so it looks pleasing are welcome. I guess steel would be slimmest but nasty thermal bridge. Oak post?
